The Best BDSM Relationship on Film

Dun dun dun DUN :snap snap:

Gomez and Morticia Addams have not only one of most passionate relationships on TV/the big screen–still driving one another crazy even after two kids and who knows how many years of marriage–but they are also well-versed in the kink thing. Caroline Diezyn explores this in The Addams Family does BDSM right for London Fuse.

THIS is the opening scene, fer crying out loud.

I had a poster of Morticia Addams on my wall when I was thirteen. I went to see the film when it came out, twice. I’ve since watched it several times.

I am a dense person.

Because it’s not like it was obvious.

Then again, I hadn’t worked out I was a kinky person until recently. I only knew those wacky Addamses went about things a bit differently than everyone else and didn’t care what anyone thought.

Growing up I only knew I was a little Gothling (well, sort of, it wasn’t called that then. I was just a person who wore too much black and read Poe.) And I liked the dark humour.

And I thought Morticia was awesome and gorgeous. And I wanted to be friends with Wednesday.

In the article linked above, Diezyn talks about Morticia and Gomez being a couple of switches, which is …true. Which is fascinating, as that’s something else that isn’t generally shown in films with blatant kink.

And the kink in The Addams Family is really, really blatant.

Clearly, I need to rewatch the film. Oh darn.

Now that I think about it–Morticia was one of my first big crushes. I was exclusively into blondes for a very long time after that, but it may explain my recent hardcore conversion. Tall, pale, raven haired women in black are obviously into pain.

And know what they're doing, too. (credit)
